Fohhn Audio in Nürtingen, Germany, announces that it has supplied an extensive range of loudspeaker systems for installation in the German, United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan pavilions at EXPO 2015 in Milan. The manufacturer previously provided loudspeaker systems for the German, Swiss and China State Grid pavilions at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai.
The theme of EXPO 2015, which opened on May 1, is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” with 140 countries and a number of international organizations taking part. More than 20 million people are expected to visit the 1.1 million square-meter exhibition site before the Expo closes on October 31.
Music & Light Design GmbH, Leonberg, has installed around 80 compact Fohhn loudspeakers in Germany’s “Fields of Ideas” pavilion, which portrays the country’s distinctive field and meadow landscapes in its architecture. Linea-Series AL-10, LX-11 and LX-10 nearfield speakers are supplemented by Fohhn subwoofers and Linea Focus LFI-120 line array systems with beam steering.
Fohhn LX-60 line source system
Fohhn’s LX-11 systems are also in the United Arab Emirates’ pavilion, alongside other Linea-Series loudspeakers, including the powerful LX-601 and new LX-60 line source systems. Additional sound reinforcement is provided by Fohhn ceiling speakers and Arc-Series AT-40 2-way loudspeakers. The systems are driven by 20 of Fohhn’s 2-channel and 4-channel Class-D digital amplifiers. All amplifier models feature integral Fohhn DSPs and can be remotely controlled. The pavilion, whose theme is “Food for Thought—Shaping and Sharing the Future,” showcases some of UAE’s innovative solutions for dealing with the challenges that arise in feeding the planet.
Finally, Kazakhstan’s “Land of Opportunities” pavilion, equipped by Bluenoise GmbH of Hamburg and SkySkan Europe, includes an IOSONO 3-D sound system featuring an Iosono Core Audio Processor, 45 CLT-201 customized Top Surround speakers and four AS-40 high powered subwoofers, as well as 13 D-4.750 and D-4.1200 Class D digital amplifiers. The 3-D sound system offers a three-dimensional audio experience where the listener is placed at the heart of the sound image and the seats on the platform move according to the film and the sound. Other parts of the pavilion have also been equipped with Fohhn speaker systems like Linea LX-601 and LX-11, speakers of the Linea AL- and ARC-Series as well as monitors and amplifiers. The 2,369-square-meter pavilion introduces visitors to the country’s endeavors in protecting natural and agricultural resources and cultivating sustainable development.
